Helping Wiltshire Council Meet the challenges ahead

Invitation to voice your views at interactive public meetings

Wiltshire Council is hosting a series of interactive meetings to discuss the challenges ahead.

The council currently spends £900 million each year on more than 350 services. The changing demographics, the continuing reduction in funding from central government and changes to the way future government funding might be provided mean further savings need to be found.

Working with local communities helping them to do more for themselves is one solution and we welcome your ideas on what more we can do together.

Our priorities continue to be supporting those who are most vulnerable in our communities, as well as taking action to boost the local economy, safeguard and create jobs and to build even stronger communities.

The council’s cabinet members will be attending the meetings and look forward to hearing your views and suggestions.

We hope you are able to attend one of the meetings below and it would be helpful if you could please confirm your attendance by emailing: events@wiltshire.gov.uk
